A major job loss is coming to Pennsylvania after two Pennsylvania hospitals announced they will be shutting down.
That's according to a report in the Times-Herald.
More than 800 people will reportedly lose their jobs when Jennersville Hospital and Brandywine Hospital, currently operated by Tower Health, close up at the end of January. That after a deal to sell them fell through.
The hospitals were originally to be sold to Canyon Atlantic Partners of Texas.
According to the Times-Herald:
In a memo to health system staff, Tower Health CEO Sue Perrotty expressed disappointment and said the deal was called off because Canyon Atlantic Partners was unable to demonstrate that it can effectively take over ownership and operation of the two hospitals.Times-Herald
